Which is better x264 or Quicksync?

x264 veryfast will give close or a bit better to H264 Haswell Quicksync quality. x264 at ultrafast-superfast can be worse than Quicksync3. But that depend on what version of Quicksync are you using too. Sandy Bridge and Ivy bridge has lower quality H264 Quicksync while Haswell+ has better quality.

What is B frames in OBS?

B-frames (bi-predictive frames) are like extra Keyframes, but instead of showing up consistently they only show as needed. This is done by looking both at the previous frame, and the upcoming frame, and inserting a new frame as needed.

What is the disadvantage of using a higher bit rate?

Higher sampling rates and larger bit depths will generally capture higher quality audio, but they also create more demands on your DAW in terms of storage (larger files sizes) and processing.

What is the advantage of a higher sample rate?

Sampling at a higher frequency will give you more effective number of bits (ENOB), up to the limits of the spurious free dynamic range of the Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) you are using (as well as other factors such as the analog input bandwidth of the ADC).

Does Bitrate make a difference?

The higher the bit rate, the better the quality of your audio or video file. ... With a slower bit rate, naturally, less data is transferred. Thus, sound and image quality are reduced. It is commonly measured using bits per second (bps), kilobits per second (kbps) or megabits per second (mbps).

How many bitrate is 720p?

For 720p video at 60 frames per second, the bitrate should be between 3,500 and 5,000 kbps.
